    ACPI compatibility problem installing WDP

    I'm trying to install WDP on a Pentium III 800MHz | 512 MB RAM | 80 GB HD, but during setup it shows a message telling that the machine is not ACPI compliant, but I know it is and it's enabled in BIOS.

    Is there any setup.exe switch/parameter that can skip compatibility check?

    Any ideas?
